Vintage Gretsch Guitars

69 G Brand Rancher Project


Isn't the G brand in the wrong spot?


They moved the g brand at some point. I thought it was around 73, but it may have been late 60s


Just checked the Scott book. The G brand came back in that location in '68 and stayed there; by '72/3 the Rancher had gone to a round sound hole. Hey, it was the seventies....


You'd have to be a big Rancher fan and very motivated to put all the money and/or work into that it needs. Because even after all that work, it probably still wouldn't sound all that great.


Here's another '69 Rancher... note G-brand placement.
